Wow - that was a quick answer! Thanks - it works great!
I see how I missed this. Neither disable_.. or enable_.. have document
strings. And neither seem to described in the optparser section (6.21)
of the Python Library (http://docs.python.org/lib/module-optparse.html).
I wonder if something like this might be added to the Python Cookbook.
